Coverage: Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan | Model type: TIMES | Horizon: 2020-2050


The integrated bottom-up partial-equilibrium energy system model of the Central Asian Caspian (CAC) Area, titled TIMES-CAC, assembles the four separate but structurally-consistent single-region TIMES country models of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan by interconnecting them through the representation of energy flows and emission permits exchanges.

The multiregional model is thought and designed as a comprehensive framework, able to explore national and/or supra-national forces, in a long-time horizon (until 2050), with the aim to test the effects of long-term energy export strategies on the energy system of the CAC countries and analyse trade-off curves between “risk” indicators and key KPIs, such as the system cost, the quantities exported and the corresponding revenues, as well as the emission reduction ambitions.

We have prepared detailed documentation on the model and made it available through the I2AMParis platform. Some results will be also published soon in the result explorer!
